The Root of Proof—A Brief Look at Geometry
Lecture no. 2 from the course: Prove It: The Art of Mathematical Argument
Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
The model for modern mathematical thinking was forged 2,300 years ago in Euclid’s Elements. Prove three of Euclid’s theorems and investigate his famous fifth postulate dealing with parallel lines. Also, learn how proofs are important in Professor Edwards’s own research.
